Description

In sphagnum in a peatland

Cap strongly conical. Gill edges at least partially orange. Mycena citrinomarginata is similar but with a paler cap that may be distinctly yellow.

M. aurantiomarginata is apparently only known from the western US, growing under conifers. The weak color of the gills and the habitat suggest that it's likely not M. aurantiomarginata, but that is the closest match I can find right now
